All Woke Up: Goodbye ‘mother’ and ‘father’

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 5, 2020

The Democrat majority in the U.S. House of Representatives has gone way-out Woke. In other words, it’s lost its collective mind. 

In a 217-206 party-line vote Monday, the Dem-led House approved a package of “sweeping” rule changes that includes nixing gender-based terms for “gender-inclusive” language in official House documents. 

Gone are ‘mother’ and ‘father,’ replaced by ‘parent.’ 

Son, daughter, brother, sister, husband, wife? They’re gone, too. Instead, the painfully Woke in the House of Representatives — the people representing mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives — have swapped in less specific, gender-neutral terms like, child, sibling, spouse, or parent-in-law.  

“Up to this point, the plot to eradicate the traditional family has been reserved for the fringe left-wing. But now, a majority of Americans have voted for a party that wants to fundamentally change our country and wants a world in which you cannot call your parents mom and dad,” U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Glenbeulah) said late Monday in a press release. “I don’t think this represents the true feelings of most Americans and if they knew they sent representatives to Washington who have blacklisted the words ‘mother’ and ‘father’, they would be appalled.”
